This is a passion project by Ali Jafarian.
The mission is… ummm, there actually is no mission. I just want to share what I’ve learned as an entrepreneur and software engineer with the rest of the world. If I can inspire or impact others in a positive way then I’m a happy dude 🙂

Who is this guy?
Hi, my name is Ali. Welcome to That Web Dude!
I'm a self-taught software engineer and entrepreneur. I've spent the last 12 years building web products for start-ups, Fortune 500's, and everyone in between.
Today I currently manage a couple of my own online businesses AFTER being a father and a husband. My current focus and purpose is raising my two beautiful children, Everest and Sepia, with the help of my amazing wife, Gabrielle.
Read my personal blog to learn more about me.
I currently operate two businesses:
MemberDev - https://memberdev.com
MemberDev is a PAAS (platform-as-a-service) agency offering customer membership platforms. We build ecommerce websites and mobile apps for startups, entrepreneurs and early stage SAAS businesses.
CM Fusion - https://cmfusion.com
CM Fusion is cloud based construction management software. We offer an all-in-one project management platform for small contruction companies and service based teams.
Who this is for (read carefully).
That Web Dude is a resource for current or aspiring professionals in the web/technology field. The articles and courses offered here will cater towards people in tech who want to become better at something specific - i.e. web design, freelancing, WordPress development, bootstrapping a startup, etc. - as it relates to growing early stage companies.
This is NOT just another "learn to code" site. I offer specific tutorials and articles from actual experience on real businesses and projects. It's the real deal Holyfield.
What you can learn here... come on in!
What you CANNOT learn here... backup young buster!
Simple answer - I want to give back.
10 years ago I started my own journey learning web design in my parents basement... yep, right after I dropped out of my last semester of college. I spent hours in front of my old Dell computer learning web design and anything else I could get my hands on. My younger brother still thinks I was "playing on the computer" to this day.
I soon started picking up clients who needed small websites. So I built them websites in exchange for money and slowly built up a portfolio. A couple years later I got my first job as a web developer, and then worked for several other companies in a variety of roles as I grew my career.
It was fun and I learned a lot, but I'm an entrepreneur at heart and always will be. Every full-time job I've had has always left me longing for more. So... today I own and operate a few of my own businesses. They afford me financial freedom - being able to live the lifestyle of my choice. Now I'd like to share what I've learned as I continue my journey.
And so, without the web and online tutorials I wouldn't be where I am today. It's time for me to pay it back, Jack.
